This is a very new, very nice looking hotel that is attached to a sister hotel La Quinta by a huge water park. If you are looking for someplace to take your young family to have fun this is great. If you are looking for a restful night not so great. We were awakened by kids running the halls and...

It's great to offer the option of the water slide park attached to this hotel. However since the cost of the rooms was as expensive as any other Fairfield hotel a free use pool and hottub combo should have still been available for those that did not want to spend nearly $8 per day to use the water park.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay here at our hotel. I understand the inconvenience of not having the traditional in-ground pool on our property. While full access to the waterpark facilities is a surcharge, we do offer discounted passes to our guests along with complimentary passes for hot tub...

We vacationed with our two oldest granddaughters ages 11 and 12 and stayed in a King Suite. It was perfect for us, the girls had the living room area with a pull out sofa and their own TV while we had a bedroom with king bed and TV for us. The bathroom was large with good quality product and everything...

Hotel 10 on a 15 hotel trip. Front desk staff were excellent. Room was clean and VERY comfortable. The room had very few electrical outlets and the ones in the room were not easy to access -- this is important for most hotel guests today because we need to be able to use our smartphones, tablets and laptops while also...

As a Marriott rewards participant I opted to stay here during a recent business trip. Not a great idea. I forgot this is a vacation destination. I had no idea there was a ware park in the hotel. This was the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Seriously. It felt like a prison cell. Ok on cleanliness. Bed...

We stayed 2 nights here so that we could visit Badlands, Mount Rushmore etc. This is a fairly average Fairfield Inn, meaning that it is a very good place to stay. Other reviewers have noted that it is attached to a large water park, with another hotel also attached. This tends to produce a noisy and very casual atmosphere. For...

Although there are signs posted in the halls for children not to run and make noise, it was clear that the children either couldn't read or don't obey the signs. Even on a high floor there seems to be almost constant pounding of small feet in the hall--likely from the adjoining property with a full-on water slide. Staff are excellent,...

Our room had a bad smell. When we turned on the heat the heater had a burnt smell and we had to open the windows to air out the room. Sheets were very wrinkled and when I tried to straighten the sheets, the mattress pad which was old and worn continued to buckle. When trying to remake the bed, the...
